I've played the WW1 version and like it. Now I'm thinking about
the WW2 version and I'm wondering how it plays. I'm interested in players' views?

I've only played two games of it. The movement card system is similar to but not the same as the WWI version in order to better represent fast moving aircraft. I thought it played okay, however it was a different gaming experience than playing the WWI version. I'd play it again. It just takes some getting used to after playing a lot of the WWI game.

I like it a lot. I ran a game this past July at Dice Tower Con. It was a hoot. Check Board Game Geek for lots of views on it. I use only the cards. Cheap enough game.

The downside is that many of the late war's iconic craft aren't in the game because they fly too fast for the game's mechanics, but that's ok with me.

It's pretty good. The turn sequence is different than the WWI to account for the speed of the A/C so it may seem a little odd at first. However, after a couple of turns, it will seem as natural as the WWI version.

It was good. I like how fuel is a factor. The more aggressive you are in turns, the shorter your fight time is.

I like it, but not half as much as the WW1 version. I also find playing 1 card a turn works better, rather like playing the old book based 'Ace of Aces' game!
